The Chris King R45D Rear Centerlock Disc Rear Hub offers maximal durability, ultra-smoothness and service life. This model is a 6 Bolt Disc Hub compatible with 142X12Thru-axle and Shimano Driveshell.

Every single R45D hub is engineered, manufactured and assembled in-house at Chris King’s HQ in Portland, Oregon. Fully serviceable and with a five-year warranty, you can be confident that you’re investing in an elite performance product that has been built to last.

Chris King hubs are synonymous with silky-smoothness, unbeatable quality and of course that distinctive angry bee sound that resounds from the hub body. The R45D is a lightweight road hub premised on over 20 years of hub building experience and over 30 years of bearing development – closer to the zenith of performance potential than ever before.

Every R45D hub utilises an innovative 45-tooth RingDrive system for minimal drag and almost instant engagement, translating power from your legs directly into propulsion – ideal if you’re driven by peak performance. As engagement systems go, this really is the best of the best.

The R45D is compatible with disc rotors, enabling you to run powerful disc brakes on your road bike.

The legendary steel bearings and heat-treated, surgical grade steel races employed in the R45D not only form a super-smooth integrated system but actually become faster as they burnish with use – wearing in, rather than wearing out. Because every R45D is fully serviceable, you can enjoy peak performance for years to come.
